Life at the Practice

💥💥This week in “Health & Exercise Forum “ by Dr. Paul Mackarey in “The Times Tribune”💥💥 Difficulty sleeping during COVID-19!? Part 2

TIPS TO IMPROVE SLEEP HYGIENE: ● Set a #routine- Going to bed and waking at the same time every day, even on weekends, strengthens our circadian rhythms. Our brains become accustomed to the routine and allow us to fall #asleep quicker, reach more restful sleep faster, and wake up feeling refreshed rather than startled by the blaring of our alarms. ● Limit screen time before bed- As stated earlier, the light from our devices tricks our eyes into believing it is day rather than night. Try to stop using your devices an hour before you head to bed to allow your brain to naturally power-down for the day. This means limiting falling asleep to Netflix as best we can. An even better idea would be to remove TVs from the bedroom all together. ● Exercise earlier in the day- While frequent exercise is essential to our health and helps us fall asleep, working out right before bed can result in poorer sleep. Avoid strenuous exercise at least one hour before bed. ● Meditation- Alright, I can hear the groans already, but it works- especially in individuals who have difficulty quieting their minds after a hectic day. An article released by the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) demonstrated significant improvements in the quality of sleep in those who practiced mindfulness meditation and compared to those who did not. ● Moving when you have difficulty falling asleep- If you find yourself unable to fall asleep within 30 minutes of lying down, get out of bed. Go to another room and read in dim lighting or listen to music until you feel tired and try again. ✨✨For full article visit mackareyphysicaltherapy.com or click the link in the bio✨✨ #physio #physiotherapy #physicaltherapy #rehab #exercise #getPTfirst #exercisescience #manualtherapy #kinesiology #dptstudent #fitness #injuryprevention #move #movement #movementmedicine #scranton #electriccity #nepa #orthopedic #scrantontimes #timestribune #covid19
💥💥This week in “Health & Exercise Forum “ by Dr. Paul Mackarey in “The Times Tribune”💥💥 Difficulty #sleeping during #covid_19 ? ▪️
Difficulty sleeping during the COVID-19 quarantine has become a common problem and can be manifested in a variety of ways; insomnia, fragmented sleep and nightmares. National prescription providers have reported a 21% increase in anti-insomnia, anti-anxiety and antidepressant medications since March of 2020. ▪️
Current reports demonstrate that roughly 100 million people suffer from insomnia at some point each year, with 25% progressing to long-term chronic sleep insufficiency. Insomnia is described as difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep for three nights per week for at least two consecutive weeks in a three-month period. ▪️

💥💥This week in “Health & Exercise Forum “ by Dr. Paul Mackarey in “The Times Tribune”💥💥 Ten Most Common Exercise #Myths! 
One positive outcome of the home #confinement during the #pandemic is that many people are spending more time than usual getting #fit. However, when it comes to exercise, like many things, there is a right way and a wrong way to do it. And, as with many topics in the #health and fitness world, there are many, many misconceptions about exercise.
1️⃣ No pain, no gain 
2️⃣ Always stretch before you exercise 
3️⃣ Lifting weight makes you bulky
4️⃣ You must work out for 60min
5️⃣ Exercise makes arthritis worse 
6️⃣Exercise machines are better than free weights 
7️⃣ Running is the best form of cardio. ✨✨For full article visit mackareyphysicaltherapy.com or click the link in the bio✨✨ #physio #physiotherapy #physicaltherapy #rehab #exercise #getPTfirst #exercisescience #manualtherapy #kinesiology #dptstudent #fitness #injuryprevention #move #movement #movementmedicine #scranton #electriccity #nepa #orthopedic #scrantontimes #timestribune
